Spring is on the way and gardeners (and would be gardeners) have another reason to be excited. Registration is underway for the "Garden in the Valley" symposium sponsored by the Northern Shenandoah Valley Master Gardener Association on March 16, 2013. Cost for the day-long event, including lunch, is $45. The symposium will be held at Shenandoah University. Topics for the day include Mow-free Lawns, Veggies: best varieties and practices for our area, Incorporating Edible Landscaping, and what's new in plants for 2013. Doorprizes will be awarded throughout the event, which lasts from 7:45 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. For more information or a registration form, visit www.nsvmga.org or email email@example.com.
